Prompted by a post card photograph, 'A Quiet Place' is about a principled solitary man ( Spade) on a pre-designated journey to retirement. Subconsciously he knows what is happening, consciously he refuses to accept the harshness of reality; slow reflexes, less alert vision and meandering of thought. This mental struggle causes him to relive, like a hallucination, some portions of his life as he travels along a lonely forest path pursued only by himself and a presence.
When I first came to my Quiet Place, I found comfort in the quietness of being alone. I remember pulling into the park, turning off the engine, and getting out of my car. I stood within a large clearing. Sometimes I would walk past the ...

"Sometimes a person needs a quiet place." A place that's far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life -- a place that isn't ringing or talking or roaring or blaring or playing. But sometimes that place isn't easy to find. You could look under a bush in your own backyard, where the world seems far away...and you could be a pirate on a desert island. Or you could sit on an old stump in the woods amidst the glittering sunlight and mossy shadows and be a timber wolf. You could look by the sea or in the desert or in a cool dark cave, but if none of these places are right, you could come home and discover another quiet place. Perhaps the very best quiet place of all -- the one that's inside of you. In poetic and gently philosophical prose, acclaimed author Douglas Wood explores what it's like to find that special place where we all can think our own thoughts and feel our own feelings. Dan Andreasen brings exquisite imagination and thoughtful wonder to words that will inspire readers of all ages to seek out their very own quiet place.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Last House Guest—a Reese Witherspoon Book Club selection—comes a riveting, “suspenseful” (BookPage, starred review) novel about a mysterious murder in an idyllic and close-knit neighborhood. Welcome to Hollow’s Edge, where you can find secrets, scandal, and a suspected killer—all on one street. Hollow’s Edge use to be a quiet place. A private and idyllic neighborhood where neighbors dropped in on neighbors, celebrated graduation and holiday parties together, and looked out for one another. But then came the murder of Brandon and Fiona Truett. A year and a half later, Hollow’s Edge is simmering. The residents are trapped, unable to sell their homes, confronted daily by the empty Truett house, and suffocated by their trial testimonies that implicated one of their own. Ruby Fletcher. And now, Ruby’s back. With her conviction overturned, Ruby waltzes right back to Hollow’s Edge, and into the home she shared with Harper Nash. Harper, five years older, has always treated Ruby like a wayward younger sister. But now she’s terrified. What possible good could come of Ruby returning to the scene of the crime? And how can she possibly turn her away, when she knows Ruby has nowhere to go? Within days, suspicion spreads like a virus across Hollow’s Edge. It’s increasingly clear that not everyone told the truth about the night of the Truetts’ murders. And when Harper begins receiving threatening notes, she realizes she has to uncover the truth before someone else becomes the killer’s next victim. Pulsating with suspense and with Megan Miranda’s trademark shocking twists, Such a Quiet Place is Megan Miranda’s best novel yet—a “powerful, paranoid thriller” (Booklist, starred review) that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.

Meditations for a Quiet Place aims to present two goals that become apparent as the book progresses. First is the exposure to scriptural references; followed by thoughtful analysis. The authors approach to scripture interpretation involves attention to textual connections that make the Word of God interesting. He believes that a devotional should go beyond the superficial treatment of isolated texts that in some cases does not address the context of surrounding verses. He admires the writings of Biblical authors like: Moses, David, Solomon, Isaiah, Luke. John and Paul. These and other authors in the Bible have written thought provoking, inspirational, wise and good for all times material that deserves our close attention. They present the attributes of the God who is loving, compassionate, just, trustworthy and righteous. This God desires to be with His people, and be known by them. He is the source of wisdom that is made readily available for those who ask for it. Wisdom is the principal thing: therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding (Proverbs 4:7, NKJV). Meditation on scripture is a spiritual exercise that is recommended by the Lord Himself, as can be seen in Joshua 1:8 and Psalm 1:1-3. These two references assure the believer of divine guidance, stability, success and prosperity. The epitome of divine guidance, stability, success and prosperity, is Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah of God. His obedience kept him focussed on the goal before him; and having accomplished it, is seated at the right hand of the throne of God (Hebrews 12:12).
